Hungarian Parliament Says IDs Must Reflect Biological Sex


Hungarian lawmakers have voted to approve a bill mandating that a person’s biological sex must be accurately reflected on their identity documents.

The measure, which was included as an article in a broader omnibus bill, effectively blocks transgender people from altering their sex on identity papers, such as birth and marriage certificates or ID cards.

All legal identity documents would contain an entry for “sex assigned at birth,” which would be determined primarily by a child’s X and Y chromosome count, according to Mandiner.
